* Game notes: Davie won five of its first six, but it’s dropped three straight in CPC play.
Davie’s won each of the last four seasons against North Forsyth and North Forsyth’s short practice week should work to rested Davie’s advantage. Davie rolled 47-13, 35-14 and 42-14 over the Vikings from 2004-06 and eked out a 3-0 decision in 2007 on a first-quarter field goal by Michael Rowe. Last year, Davie held North Forsyth to 48 rushing yards on its way to its fifth straight CPC title.Davie QB Zach Illing threw for 241 yards last week and has 2,087 passing yards and 17 TDs in a remarkable season, but he was intercepted and sacked often last week. Illing’s top targets remain Joe Watson (770 yards, 10 TDs) and Jarrell Marshall (472 yards), but P.J. Neely has also emerged of late.
Davie has scored 298 points, but it’s given up 240. In CPC games, Davie’s been outscored 99-49. Linebacker Matt Speer and his teammates hope to change those numbers this week.
Davie hasn’t lost four straight since it fell to Statesville, Freedom, North Forsyth and West Forsyth in 2003.
